of new york, the city's youngest mayor and the first mayor of color and at the age of 24, just last january, he was sworn in after winning a sweeping a town -- 18 out of 18 districts and winning a four-way mayoral race. before being appointed he was on the city -- the common counsel representing this witty woody's 4th ward. he is a graduate of cornell university where he majored in communications and he was quite active while he was there tutoring underserved students at ithaca and serving as a board member of the racing education attainment challenge organization. immediately to my right is alex morse who is the mayor of holyoke massachusetts. he is also the city's youngest mayor. and he is the second youngest mayor in state history. is that correct? yeah, so he graduated from brown university with a degree in urban studies and during his time at brown he worked as a youth career counselor. he was also on the governors lgbt commission and the main focus of his administration at the moment are early childhood literacy, building an economy focused around art, innovation and technolog
. we in michigan have to decide in november whether to allow the state to come in to the city and as a public use to take over and print the financial manager were emergency manager for the cities that have financed the distress and take over the local government where they can come in and remove the city officials like the mayor and the city council. i don't think that's the the presidential candidate mitt romney had in mind when he wanted to say states have rights. what about the city's rights to elect their own elected officials? and help do they own? when you say government interference, i understand you were talking about the federal government, but i heard mitt romney say that states' rights, is it the rights of the state's coming into the cities to overthrow the local municipalities? if that's a big government, small government, i don't know, is it controlled government? i think they have a right to control their own destiny in their own city. so the public is on the ballot in november, and i am turning everybody in michigan to vote down. we don't need dictatorship. it
in dialogue. i hope that going forward the women in gendered city's poor and human rights would work toward not necessarily a debate, but a panel with less unilateral view on a topic that is very contentious in our society. i do have one specific question. when both you and professor spoke of the bishops not accepting a compromise that was positioned, it does seem to me a bit of a distinction without a difference. if i -- either i pay for something myself that i oppose par pay for somebody who must provide this thing that i oppose i wonder if you could just elaborate on why that seems a brilliant solution and what you think the bishops, why they continue to not see that. why i see that as not really much -- >> might taxes pay for an awful lot of things that i opposed. [applause] >> just to be clear, the position is that the institution's money does not go toward the care that they object to, so that is why i see it as an appropriate or a well intentioned and well functioning agreement. the money goes from women's pockets to the insurance that they are part of. while there may be other folks
's mayor for revitalizing a nation of one of the great cities, outstanding leadership during the 9/11 tragedy. during his tenure, he reduced the crime right in new york by more than half, and he cleaned up the streets. i keep adding that on my own deal. he decreased the welfare roles by 60%. by decreasing welfare? no, by increasing work. during the nation's most trying time, he stood up as a man of great character and strength. president reagan named him associate attorney general at the age of 36, just a few years ago, and that was the third most powerful position in the justice department, spent six years as a u.s. attorney in the southern district. his prosecution rate was 99%. we don't want to get on the other side of him. throughout his public career, he was recognized -- he has recognized the spurnes of the legal system and the fact we're protected. i told you he's a man of great character, and he's a character. rudy guiliani, you see what you get, and when he tells you something, he believes it, and he's a man of his word, his absolutely good, but he's also a character. you
>> when they return, we do expect to hear from former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. he is the keynote speaker, and we'll get his perspective on the upcoming elections. later this afternoon, remarks from the head of the consumer products safety commission, nancy nord, about 2:40 eastern all of that live here on c-span2. right now, though, your phone calls from this morning's "washington journal." >> host: here's "the wall street journal," we'll begin with that above the fold. candidates battle to lock up key states, it says here that backed by a ramp-up in tv ad purchases, mitt romney will spend much of the final two weeks of the campaign presenting himself as a bipartisan bridge builder, aides said, while president barack obama tries the persuade -- to persuade voters to this remine rival is painting a veneer over conservative policy positions. that's "the wall street journal". and then this morning "the washington post" says this: candidates adopt new roles for the final stretch. on a day of high energy rallies, president obama's campaign also announced grand last minu
a family together while you're serving on a city council. i totally agree with you that we all need to play a part of serving our country. it starts i think with people like yourself speaking out more. i think we need, again, i'm speaking personally here, i think when you get more and more people be conscious of the fact that, you know, kennedy was right. ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. sometimes democrats are right. [laughter] >> maybe we should end it there. [laughter] >> i said sometimes. so i would say that your point is a very important one, and i certainly personally would hope that anybody was watching this pays attention to your concerns. because being a military wife is now less easy than serving in the military. i know. i've been working with the military for more than 35 years. i have friends who lost their husbands, had to bring up kids on their own. i had other friends, many navy and marine corps friends that spent months on in paying the bills, dealing with the kids, doing the carpool, taking care of the house, working the job, m
be proud of the gateway to the greatest city in the greatest nation on earth. few if any have the experience of flying out of kennedy airport to a foreign destination and encountering an airport that they regard less favorably than they regard kennedy airport. quoting the use of the 1916s and i suppose i was one, saying if not now, when? if not now, when the interest rate in the currency we print is 2.4% for 30 years. if not now, when the construction unemployment rate approaches 15%. if this is not the time to rebuild kennedy airport, when is? kennedy airport is no isolated example. a study in nevada found that it cost five times as much if you maintain roads too late, if you maintain them on time. we have roads across this country filled with hot coals -- hobbles --potholes for. every time i went to a city i would take a couple hours and go to the public school and talk about the importance of education. probably pretty cliche that and more cliche over the subsequent 12 years. i will never forget one of the time the young teacher took me aside and said that was a great speec
the 53rd mayor of charlotte and served seven terms as the cities leader. he began his political career in 1989 as a city councilman. >> moderator: just a few moments ago we flipped a coin to see the order of how the questions would be asked tonight who would answer first and would have the last closing statements. mr. mccrory won the coin toss. laura? >> the first question about the economy and unemployment rate the number one issue for voters the last couple years as a sure you are both aware. north carolina has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. we realize as governor you can't make a lot but realistically speaking as governor, what can you do to fix this problem and what would you do in your first month's? mccrory: several things i would do first of all life and north carolina has to get into the energy business. we've been sitting on the sidelines for too long with natural gas exploration and offshore drilling and while other states have moved jury quickly and the states that have moved quickly have much lower unemployment rate in addition they are contributing t
half of the real estate in the city of los angeles are in the hands of foreign investors. i am concerned about what that does to our future. i'm concerned about the fact that so many of our securities are in the hands of foreign banks because of these massive deficits. but those are the issues on which we ought to be debating, and if we can just put away the flag factories and the balloons and those kinds of thing and get on to a real discussion of these issues, i think we will have a good success. >> andrea mitchell has a question for you, governor dukakis. >> we are talking about issues, so let's return to something you said earlier about the modernization of land-based missiles. you said that you didn't rule it out that there are limits to what we can spend, and then you went on to talk about a much more expensive part of our defense strategy, namely, conventional forces. do you somehow see conventional forces as a substitute for our strategic forces, and in not talking about the land-based missiles and not committing to modernizing, do you somehow believe that we can have a
out, and we're not the only ones, there are other organizations in this city that have mapped out other plans for reducing military spending not on the grounds that it has an economic effect, but because it is simply not necessary, because, to use the crime analogy, thankfully, crime has declined. and, therefore, the feed for those security services has also declined. so i would encourage you to look at our earlier study from 2010, but others, sustainable defense task force, even bowles-simpson had some talk in there about military spending and what that would look like. >> right. >> what impact -- >> there's one further point to make, and that is if you look at the budgets, the baseline numbers excluding the overseas contingency operations, for the out years, those numbers are slightly phony because the cuts assume that the baseline actually will have been what would have been spent in absence of the sequestration. i'm not convinced of that at all. those numbers may have been smaller in which the sequestration cuts -- >> and i think, you know, adding to that, one of the reasons i
bailouts. and also one other thing, she's raised more money out of new york city than has the city of reno. i have raised more none in this campaign in the city of reno than new york city. she's raised more money out of wall street than i have in this campaign. who's in the pockets of the big money in wall street? >> moderator: thank you very much. our next question comes from diego santiago who will direct it to congresswoman shelley berkeley. >> congresswoman berkeley, i was intrigued looking through both of your web sites that both the candidates have the country of israel as one of your top issues. now i ask, why is this issue at the top of your agenda, and has enough been done to defend our only true ally in the middle east? berkeley: i pride myself on being a strong supporter of israel. in the united states congress on either side of the aisle, we share a common bond, and it's the only democracy in a very dangerous part of the world and one of our strongest allies in the world. i think we need to do everything we can to work with israel to insure that iran does not acquire nuclear we
could have in pennsylvania. that is my state and that is my city. and we have worked together on things. if it was really important that whoever was to disagree without being disagreeable and work together for the betterment of our common enterprise. i know that i have a reputation of being a hard charger and strong conservative and fighting for the things that i belong to. but i have a pretty good record of success with getting a lot of things done. you don't do that unless you work with the other side of the senate you can't make that happen. i think there is something to be said for barbara boxer nine. we fought like cats and dogs and i can't even tell you how many issues. but some of the biggest legislative accomplishments -- i felt that it barbara boxer and i agreed on something, everybody else would. [laughter] >> so if i could get her, by and large they did compromise. we have to start looking at the idea of trying to move the ball instead of digging in and thinking the other side is bad people. they are misguided, but they are not that. [laughter] >> that is what i said about ea
district. ames and mason city specifically now joining sioux city in anchoring the previously predominantly rural district republican steve king has been representing in the khan crestor in the past ten years. and he's been winning the election by a fairly comfortable margin getting a fifth with two-thirds of the chaos two years ago. but rita esters the delete redistricting with the demographics may be deluding the republican dominance and that is what kristi vilsack may have been hoping for when she moved to ames declaring candidacy for the congressional seat. she's familiar with the district traveling as i was the first lady during tom vilsack's eight years as governor. welcome to "iowa press." and of course both of you are familiar with the format but we are in a different setting here with an audience in addition to our television viewers but in the audience here watching and listening they promised to not cheer at all and we don't want to hear from them that they will be cheering at the beginning and at the end. questions in this special edition of all "iowa press" will be coming from
the city's elementary schools equally along racial lines to justice john roberts wrote the majority opinion called the meds extreme. in 2009 the court ruled that new haven connecticut violated the civil rights five-year fighters after the results of a promotion exam because not enough blacks had passed. with liberal leaning justice elena kagan reducing herself a key vote could apply again with justice anthony kennedy as we heard from adam. sandy a democrat. what do you think? >> caller: yes. >> host: what do you think of affirmative action in this case specifically for the court? >> caller: well, first of all i would like to hear the make up and see the makeup of the total top ten when she was denied because we so often have not only racial problems, we can have gender problems as well. so before i want to -- before we get into a big hassle about affirmative action and how we as black people or we as white people as a minority, we are not able to have a fair shot in getting into that college and also listening to the case may be they may need to reform. the racial ethnic of the and a gradua
supporters in the battleground state of florida. he is at the sun city community center and it's live right now on c-span. also this afternoon, new jersey governor chris christie will be in virginia campaigning for mitt romney. you can see his comments live from richmond starting at 4:45 eastern on c-span. and looking quickly at the president's, presidential candidate's schedules, the president held a campaign event in virginia a short time ago. he was at george mason university. we did air it live online. if you missed any of it you can catch it at c-span.org. the president heading to camp david for the weekend as he preps for the third and final presidential debate on monday night. mitt romney today is in florida with a rally in daytona beach this afternoon where he will be joined by his running mate paul ryan. former governor romney will stay in florida through monday. >> i have to be honest with you, i love these debates. you know, these things are great.

generation to leave your city, state and nation in a better spot than what you found. i believe this is the first time in american history where that's in question. are we going to leave the next generation in a better spot than what we found? my little girl, ruby ruth, who's going to turn 7, and my boy, tiny tony, just turned 5 a couple years ago, i look at their bright faces and their smiles, and i say they deserve to grow up in a ventura county that i grew up in with the same opportunities that i had as a child here in ventura county. they deserve that opportunity, and that means when a student graduates from this great school, they're not buried with a mountain of debt, and when they search for work, they're able to find a job right here in ventura county. you see, i don't care if it's a democratic idea or republican idea, i only care if it's a good idea. and if it's good for ventura county, i'm all in. i'd be honored to have your vote five weeks from today. thank you. [applause] >> moderator: that there are several people taping, they are press, and they're authorized, and
major cities or small cities to the countryside. very difficult in my experience, through important trade which defined them and world view previous. i can have a few words to that. endurance, adaptability, confidence, sometimes over confidence. i think it's important to know this generation. in many ways, and also later day studying college. this early 1980s was the most liberal period in china's education system. they were really exposed to western ideas. they translate the constitution of development of foreign countries in uk and elsewhere into chinese. he reads english very well. now, that's really a wonderful opportunity, and, but these also could be the problem it has if we fail to understand that, this is a generation because of their personal experience they don't want to be lectured. they actually will be more, conducive with and get soft approach to talk for cooperation. but you just use force to intimidate them, they will act very first home. i hope that what i said is important. that if we use force, use just a single-minded lecture, we don't solve the knowledge of chin
? >> there are people in the city who know better than i do with the congressional politics, i would say the president is going to continue to champion full comprehensive reauthorization to bring benefits to kids and communities across the country and make fundamental changes and some of the race to the top and other reform efforts support across the country raising standards as people make progress, i do think they will keep running into barriers and it will be a growing outcry from states, democratic and republican governors to reauthorize elementary education and that gives a shot in the first year or two of a second term. >> governor romney is elected a review of the ways, what is the likely outcome? will the negate the waivers? will be issued his own conditions? >> the priority of taking office will get a comprehensive reauthorization of no child left behind which will render waivers a new issue. however, it is not clear that will happen, but you need to plan for the contingency that it doesn't. a couple things about the waivers that concern me. the first is the waiver process did not just grant
difficult circumstances with the dignity that is unmatched in this city and any of the great cities in the country. it's a mobility of humanity simply because of the dignity with which the negatives that were put in their way and the harshness of life. my grandmother is still the greatest person. you told me of a person who could have accepted and not have a father or lose a mother handed from pillar to post from the grandmother and build new education and yet segregation, jim crow law rose above it and insisted that his grandson's rise above its. fight, participate, eliminate but do not be consumed by it. in so many ways we talk about the founding fathers and yet the house fell in a way because of the contradiction and the generation rebuilds it. frederick others see -- frederick and others. do we today in our law and our culture give enough credit to that refunding? >> you think of the great moments in our history. we talk about of course the revolution, certainly the constitution that we celebrate now, 225 years. it was all coming apart and the country as we know today is reshape
the expansion of gaming and other cities. where do you stand on the proposed casino by the tried? mr. baumgartner? baumgartner: i know this issue because i oppose the expansion of this casino, the building of this casino. one of the things that is important that this issue is it is right next to the air force base which is tremendously important for the national security but also tremendously important for the economy of eastern washington, and this proposed casino would put that in doubt. and if to say in general with the issues in recent years when he put up with economic development on the native american indian reservations. when i was a boy i had the great privilege of paying down at the french. i was almost the only non-native american on the team and we twice on the basketball championships and went to the nationals and i thought at a young age being different than everybody else in the competitive environment like that really helped my formation and helped me want to learn more about other cultures. i think that you would find me as someone that is a great sympathy and a desi
at as you can see, the democratic strength is in urban areas in the city of dayton, the city of columbus, the city of cincinnati. it's in the southwest part of the state. you see the three blue counties. that's old coal country mining area that's highly white working-class, appellation influence. the county is near the park spurred market, is the home of ohio university. and then you've got the industrial area of lake erie. and slightly down there. the blue dots show what the democrats have visited. and here you can see, based on where they visited, that they have been employing an early voting strategy. that each place they visited is a place that has a significant -- bursar evan has a significant african-american inner-city population. each one is one where currently, if you look at the ohio early voting totals has overwhelming numbers of people are coming out to vote early. you've got three visits in cleveland, one in lorraine, which has a small and i shall community down road from cleveland, one in 10, again old industrial, small african-american committee. you see that barack obama
in the city so firefighters that detroit needs because it must have the highest case of arson in the country, these guys are laid off. about two weeks later, 100 guys rehired, and when you look to find out where the money came from, it's the department of homeland security has a fund for things like that, and i don't want to, you know, overstate, but i was -- that's something you want to think about. the department of homeland security needed to step in to keep detroit, you know, safe as it could be for the moment. it could be a lot safer, but, so we're talking about i wonder, and i wondered in making the film, we've seen the auto industry bailout, the bank bailout. are we headed into an era of bailout of cities? is there such a thing as a failed city? >> for with heidi sunday at eight on c-span's "q&a." >> the supreme court expected to hear two cases next week that could affect privacy rights and the ban on unreasonable searches. constitutional law scholars discuss the upcoming florida versus hardiness and both deal with questions on privacy and dog sniffing and what constitutes a legal sea
, corporations are ingratiate. why are we going to 2%? in this one i can't prove. this city is okay. there is a huge wet blanket out here. and to me the uncertainty, real certainty around taxes, policies, fiscal cliff. the debt ceiling fiasco. this constant anti business not just sentiments, but regulatory ag's. wherever i go i have business people. the regulatory environment. they all say it's terrible. it's not just banks. we have done it to ourselves. shoot ourselves in the foot. get rid of that white blanket. and they're is a great -- printed in the wall street journal. kate president-elect ronald reagan some advice. consistent taxes, regulatory. the same positive story over and over and over, and it will turn. and you have to believe in it. so america is usually going to do the right thing after it has exhausted the possibilities. i'm hoping we do. the important part to me is in washington, if you think that washington and business can go to work with each other and begin, collaboration is what should happen. we should have had collaboration we were in a crisis. every business
voted so look, in campaigns from presidential down to city council every aspect of the campaign message turnout. i think the air wars are the ones that get all the coverage on tv but i think the ground wars will be equally important. look, i think the other thing about the electorate is at least in "the wall street journal" colin the nbc poll that the two firms collaborated on it was pre-debate. you know the president was winning independent voters by 13 points. and, in 2008 he defeated john mccain by 8% with independent smacks so with the admonition of less -- let's wait until the dust has settled and see the polls in the next couple of days i'm going to be looking at the numbers in the other thing very quickly in terms of the minority vote. the other thing about barack obama's election in 2008 was the one something on the order of 43% of the white vote and in most of the national polls that is kind of where he is so that will be another number to look out for. the country is changing and in 2008, three-quarters of the electorate was white which was down from the mid-to high 80s 20 yea
congressional district, democrat and former state representative key stint cinema is up against republican city council member vernon parker live tonight at 8:30 eastern here on c-span2. and live now to remarks from the former director of mossad, israel's intelligence agency. he'll give his perspectives on the israeli/palestinian conflict, also iran's nuclear program and the uprisings in syria and egypt. ephraim halevy has served in the no o sad for almost 40 years. this is just getting started. >> 2,500 people since its inauguration. um, jane harman, the president and ceo of the wilson center, will introduce today's speaker, efraim halevy, the former director of the mossad and former head of the israeli national security, and aaron miller, the center's vice president for new initiatives, will moderate this session. jane harman resigned from congress on february 28, 2011, to join the woodrow wilson center as its first female director, president and ceo, and you can imagine how thrilled we as women at the center are. and you don't want me to continue with your -- i practiced.

city. the refinery has 92% saudi arabian employees. stretching all the way from management to blue-collar employees. exxon mobil was into saudia station before saudia station was required. we anticipate this to the same degree of the new refinery that they are building as well. they are focusing on businesses that can take some of these derivatives and turn them into products. this, by the way, is the key to the kingdom strategy called a knowledge-based economy. start with something you know. which in the case of saudi arabia, as petroleum. they moved downstream to refining. then onto products of element where you create intellectual property and start businesses by taking the derivatives in making products in all of this. all this creates jobs. the kingdom is employing this model in other areas. not so impressive as the joint venture between an aluminum company and the mining company. on the 12th of december, i will attend a ceremony in eastern covers where the two companies will pour the first hawk aluminum in just over three short years from the signing of the joint venture agre
in the iowa delegation on a continual basis. in 2008 when the floods hit in iowa city i went over there immediately and flew over all that and went on the ground and met with the leaders of cedar rapids for example for the democrats that represent that part of the state. they didn't take me about but rejoined me together and everything. when we get hit with floods on the side of the state become over and join me. i introduced legislation to protect us from the next flood coming down the missouri river with the sign on right away. that is the bipartisanship the you get in a national disaster. they are less partisan and congress but we have had a broad bipartisan effort here with an iowa working with those things that matter to iowa and hopefully i will be able to get a bipartisan support on the farm bill like a forgotten by partisans of along the missouri river legislation. h.r. 2942 in case you want to google that. >> moderator: mrs. vilsack how did you cut through the partisanship and build consensus in congress? vilsack: i was with amy klobuchar yesterday and she is someone that
with mayors against illegal guns. we look at the gun violence in new york city and what they been able to do. it's sort a fantastic in terms of the results. certainly us or trying to make sure we close the gun show loopholes making sure we're looking at background checks, to make sure those happen more effectively and efficiently. and also pleased to say the online council on handgun violence will be giving me an award in november. schneider: this is again under the difference. i do believe in the assault weapons ban. whizzing too much violence happen in our cities, in our communities. we need to reinstate the weapons ban that expired in 2004. we need to ban large-scale magazines allow someone to go to a theater and poll of 50 rounds rounds in a minute. this mixer cities more dangerous. you talk about much are not linked of the action behind. this is what you done in congress. when you go for the rhein plan when you vote against women's rights, when you vote against the environment -- dold: i didn't vote against wom
and if we can get to all of the components. in 2009 after president obama took office the city was sacked included new credits that were primarily focused on low-income families and families that have kids in college that were extended in 2010 and expired at the end of the year. there's the timber cut in social security payroll taxes the was done in the stimulus for 2011 and extended for 2012. and then in addition to all of those expiring tax provisions that got most of the attention from the fiscal macroeconomic point of view and another thing we have to the start of next year and the tax increases included in the 2010 health reform act. and so, when you look at the debate over the fiscal cliff, the point is to recognize there is a very diverse array of tax provisions that are under discussion. and that's important for understanding the effects on american households, different households are affected differently by these provisions. at the low end of the income distribution for example the credits that were enacted in 2009 turn out to be very important as the temporary payroll taxes. te
that romney didn't have any gaffs. that is "politico" this morning. up next is garrison in missouri city, texas, on our support president obama line. hi. >> caller: how are you doing this morning? >> host: good. what did you think of last night's final debate? >> caller: last night i thought it was pretty much even. i'm first-time voter, first-time college student, first-time voter so i've been paying attention a lot to what is going on. last night each candidate came with a lot of what i like. they actually went into specifics on what they would do for the foreign policy which i hadn't heard a lot of before this debate and i think it really helped to lay out some groundwork. >> host: garrison, where do you go to school? >> caller: i'm at prayer very view a and m university. >> host: what do you study? >> caller: i study mechanical engineering. >> host: thanks calling in this morning. from the as muse sin report, daily presidential tracking poll from monday. rasmussen reports daily presidential tracking poll from monday. is mitt romney attracting report from 49% of voters nationwide whil
of many others in the city and not just like ourselves. >> mark, do you want to pose the last question? >> just a quick one. something not addressed in the comments by deputy secretary carter, and it's rarely mentioned, but taiwan, under its existing republic china constitution, is an independent sorch state, the absent of relations does not sub tract from the reality. with this in mine, there's sensitivities with beijing. i'm curious, what potential role could taiwan play in u.s. rebalancing in asia? what are we missing now, and what could be done more in leveraging with what taiwan has to offer with the united states and its interests? >> this is a trap. [laughter] he knows the answer to the question. [laughter] i will fall into it anyway. [laughter] my own view, and this is a whole, you know, i think other conversation about building fore structure and capacity in asia pacific is that the states that are a bit weaker than china can pull a page out of china and develop their own anti-access scenario and denial capabilities and make it woefully painful for china to project power into
